is making -- >> now these apps that 4-year-olds can use after these commercials that target the obama children politically, those numbers, i think, are going to continue to break. i'm telling you, robert gibbs, these people are causing serious damage to their brand and more importantly to the cause of the second amendment. >> i absolutely don't disagree. i mean, i think they have done more so set back their own cause. but let's peer through some of the twisted logic in some of what they've done. i mean, the notion from wayne lapierre that the only way to match a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, why do we provide the bad guys with the type of weapons that they use in afghanistan? why are we -- why are we dependent upon having a good guy with a gun? we're depending on that, in their logic, because we've decided that what we -- what we hunt the taliban with is okay to have in your neighborhood. that doesn't make any sense. >> and by the way, robert, on that front -- >> i'll say this. you and i are from the south, right? >> right. >> hunting is important. i was never a hunter,

, six years, even before he endorsed barack obama the first time, i would get attacked for associating with colin powell's very conservative with a small "c" realist approach that republican presidents followed for years. it was the weinberger doctrine. it was the reagan doctrine. it was the powell doctrine. and suddenly, it became the doctrine of lefties? >> colin powell is a self-identified republican and has been for many, many years. and with each passing year, with each passing election cycle, the republican party, too many within the republican party, try to further estrange him from the republican party platform, from much of what is said publicly by a lot of republicans. colin powell is also a guy who has the ability and the belief that a lot of republicans -- not a lot -- but too many republicans and too many democrats don't have, he has the ability and the belief to put country ahead of party. and that's unfortunately something that's passe in washington. >> the problem, leigh, though is there are, you know, we're here in new york. or washington or boston or l.a. and the conv
scene. >>> an embarrassing for president obama's jobs council. it has been one year since it held an official meeting. the council will expire at the end of the month unless the president extends it. no comments from the white house on why the council hasn't met in so long. >>> manti te'o staying silent about the dead girlfriend hoax. he cruised by the cameras at the training facility in florida. notre dame says it learned it was a hoax december 6. two days later he was still talking about her death. meantime an unedited transcript of an interview he did shows te'o having a hard time answering simple questions like how they met. multiple reports identify the fake girlfriend as a 23-year-old marketing coordinator from california. >>brian: there is something sweeping the headlining. you know what tebowing is? this is called te'o-ing. >>brian: this other guy took a picture of him looking at an empty shower and says look at my girlfriend naked in the shower. >>gretchen: if it wasn't so sad, it would all be hysterical. >>brian: i don't know how sad it is. she's not dead because she nev
think obama has papered over that for the last four years. but i think that's going to change here in the next few years. the first issue where i think we'll see a conversation on this is the question of entitlements. there are some folks in the democratic party who are happy to have a conversation on issues like the eligibility age for medicare. other democrats like sherrod brown, the senator from ohio, i talked to, they say hell, no, we are not going to have a conversation about that. that is core to our dna, and we're not going to move on that. >> j-mart, last time republicans had an internal debate about a lot of these issues, a lot of folks divided the party. you mention smd moderaed some m coming over to the democratic party. do you see a contentious primaries in the future for the 2014 midterms? >> well, look. i don't think you're going to see the sort of club-for-growth-style conservative on moderate attacks that you see in the gop. i think you're going to see some of that. keep in mind, the primary story began '06 when joe lieberman in connecticut faced a threat from his l
president obama, my name is julia. i'm an 11-year-old who lives here in d.c. there are no words to explain how sad i am about the school shooting. even though i'm not scared for my safety, i'm scared for others. i have four brothers and sisters and i know i would not be able to bear the thought of losing any of them. i may not be that into politics, but my opinion is it should be very hard for people to buy guns. the only thing they do is harm or kill and guns should only be in the most horrible event, where others will get hurt if they are not. i know that laws have to be passed by congress, but i beg you to try very hard to make guns not allowed, not just for me, but the whole united states. my love and regrets, julia. >> that's a very thoughtful letter, julia. why did you decide to sit down and write it? >> well, i was overwhelmed with sadness about the school shooting and knew as one person i couldn't do anything, but i knew that president obama could. so i decided to write this letter hoping that at least he would read it and think of doing something. >> theo, you're the dad. did you
reasons. but it's interesting to note in the last 90 years, out of the 11 times that the budget from the president has been late, four of those 11 have been under the obama administration. we're also informed that there is a chance once again, like there was a year and a half ago, that our credit rating of the u.s. could be lowered again. by another credit rating agency. some have tried to paint it as a different story, different picture, but for those of us who recall what happened, s&p made it clear that they didn't believe that the united states was serious about dealing with this dramatic spending problem, overspending problem. where we were spending $1.5 billion, $1.6 trillion, over $1 trillion more than the $2-plus trillion that we had coming in. and that if we didn't at least reduce the massive overspending annually by at least $400,000 -- $400 billion, rather, for 10 years, a total of $4 trillion over a 10-year period, then it would make it pretty clear that we were not serious about dealing with our debt. i know the obama administration went on the warpath after s&p, after t

are killed with guns. president obama will take the oath of office, and during those 0our years, some 4800 americans will be killed with guns. twice as many people as were killed in combat in the vietnam war. i have made it clear our has threesan coalition requiring legislation and four calling for executive action and i hope they will support all seven. first and most urgently -- we need the presidenet and congress congress to require background checks at gun sales and online. private sales account for 40% of gun sales nationally. there were more than 6 million gun sales that happened with no background checks. many of these are handguns, used in 90% of all firearms murders. across the united states, 80% or ofgun owners and 90% americans require gubackground checks for gun sales. we have laws on the books requiring background checks when dealers sell guns. it is time for the president and congress to make this the law of the land. 40% that the law does not apply to is a sham. and congress should make gun trafficking a federal crime. 80% of the guns we find at crime scenes are from out of

a election in this country. whether any technology lessons to be drawn from this years election? >> it's always hard to reason from one event. the winners get to write history and the losers think about the next election. there's no question the obama campaign, had a technology strategy that helped elect the president. they had little processors and targeted programs and send out the vote. to me the way to say this is governments are going to change, too. because on the one hand governments have an awful time delivering services. now we can measure the. if someone as you give me some money to donate rice to the following village, we cannot check whether the rice got there. a check and balance on sort of the corruption. and we can test the effectiveness of programs. to give you some of the more worrisome examples, governments can know where people really are and governments can figure out where people report what they're doing versus what they're actually doing. there are all sorts of worrisome scenarios that you can imagine, the slippery slope. i'll pick one in britain. in london when
the obama administration there's actually been great leaps forward in terms of transactional use of the internet. people file their taxes online. this goes off year after year with relatively to problems. you know -- no problems. you know, this has actually been, those two things have been good advantages. i think the major failing over the last 20 years, and it really goes even back beyond that, is that because we were in a sort of anti-government mode for much of that time and we had at least until the last election a very ascendant conservative feeling in the country, we started to do government not through government. and i think what my two colleagues here are reflecting is that we began to implement policy through regulation and through the tax system. as opposed to taking on policy head on. so your example, phil, about the congo, okay? look, clearly that place is a mess. clearly -- >> uh-huh. no argument. [laughter] >> every good intention people in the congress wanted to make a stance. but doing it that way? as opposed through a more direct, straight-on, diplomatic endeav
used by vice president biden four years ago and used throughout his swearing-ins as senator. following the swearing-in of the vice president, james taylor will sing "america the beautiful" after which president obama will be administered the oath of office. this will be done as is done traditionally, by supreme court justice john roberts, and there'll actually be two bibles used this time. the first is the lincoln bible, it's the same bible that was used by president lincoln when he was sworn in for the first time in 1861. and that will be on top of the king family bible which has been graciously provided for this ceremony by the king family. excuse me. kelly clarkson will then sing "my country 'tis of thee" before richard blanco reads an original poem written just specifically for this occasion. we're very excited that richard blanco will be joining us. he is the youngest-ever inaugural poet, the first hgbt -- lgbt inaugural poet. reverend louis leon will be overseeing the traditional st. johns service that kicks off the president's day will be offering the benediction, and the ceremo

and registered on public roles. for all the controversy over president obama's health care mandate, they have got so much attention in june of last year, the founding fathers in 1792 pass a law requiring every free citizen, free mail between the ages of 18 and 45 to outfit themselves with a rifle. a military style musket for -- capable of serving in the militias. the founding fathers did not view the second amendment as a basis for insurrection. rather, they viewed it as part of a well-regulated militia. >> thank you. >> i was wondering if you could talk a little bit about whether in the publication you might be able to stress i or break out likely voters. just thinking about polls that people are paying attention. also 2 likely voters and also by state or region of the country. >> those are good questions. survey firms have algorithms that allow them to break out motors. for this purpose we care about the views of all americans and so we wanted to report the rates of support among americans, broadly speaking. we did not ask that likely voter battery to subset the data. there are other important
'll continue to do that for the next four years and i think we are all kind of used to it by now. jon: let me reach a floor beach that senator obama gave in 2006, ellen. he said leadership means that the buck stops here. instead washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. america has a debt and a failure of leadership, americans deserve better, i therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. that was what senator obama had to say. why does it not apply now that he's president? >> well, first of all, you know, i don't understand why it applies or not applies, that's what he address ned his press conference. what i do want to address is the mainstream media. a lot of people think it's a liberal by as and it may be liberal by as, i don't know, i'm a liberal so -- okay. what i do think it may be is media laziness. i have to fault the mainstream media for not putting side-by-side the president's comments with his votes. i think that american people, no matter who is president, whether it's president bush or pres
